Accidental Potty Training: Cloth Diaper Magic

I used to let the little one wear cloth diaper at least once a day so that her privates have a time to breathe from all the cotton, plastic (and probably chemicals) of disposable diapers. But we went for vacation for almost 2 months with almost everyday moving and going out. And the convenience of disposable nappy was a reasonable choice. That 2 months became almost a year. Bad mommy.

Then a couple of weeks ago, I consciously started the little one again on at least once a day cloth diaper (or sometimes just nickers). I put on the cloth nappy upon waking up since after breakfast, we will be taking a bath and change nappies again. It is just a short period of time and usually she doesn't pee much or poop early during the day. Then I change her again into washable diapers just before dinner since a little after the meal, it would be pre-bedtime routine -- brush teeth, shower, change nappies, etc. After a few days of doing these, myNatnat would go to me and say "poopoo" AFTER she wets  her cloth nappies. Then it became, "Eeeewww. Poopoo." WHILE she is peeing and runs toward me so I could change her into clean ones. Notice the change from AFTER peeing and WHILE peeing!? It's amazing that she can finally say and feel these normal body activities. (It still seems like yesterday that she's still this tiny dependent, little baby.) And it's awesome  how she learns these things by just wearing cloth diapers. It's magic.

Now, time for mommy and daddy to read up on toilet training... and do a little shopping too. :)
